    I sure hope she gets babies this time. Last time she had about 4 days left when White Leghorn #2 decided she wanted to set and smashed the eggs. She was just too heavy and this breed,although they make fierce mothers,tend to be clumsy footed during brooding. #1 only has 4 eggs(marans)left. I think I set her with 8. #2(hatch date 7-10) has 5(I think) mixed breed eggs left. I can't remember how many I set her with,but it was more than 5.
    Wish them(and me)luck.
